Adding an Extra Group
Post by Jason on May 26th, 2003, 2:37pm

Adding an extra Group

Go into edit member groups in the admin control area, and enter your extra member group in the box at the bottom, using the format shown below:

<b>Group</b><br /><img src='URL OF IMAGE'><img src='URL OF IMAGE'><img src='URL OF IMAGE'><img src='URL OF IMAGE'><img src='URL OF IMAGE'>

It is important that there is no spaces in the code or it will not work.

If you use the Conforums star image, please host the image yourself, rather than linking from our image server.

Then, go in the user profile, click on 'modify' and give them the 'Group' position.

If, at any time, you alter any extra member group

IE: add stars or alter it in any way,

you must then go back to any member who was originally in this group and amend there profile by reapplying them to the group.

Since the recent update, there is now a quicker and easier way of creating basic extra member groups.

To do this, go into the members profile you wish to assign to a new member group, then near the bottom of the screen, is a new box entitled "Position: (create new)". Enter the new member group, and save the changes. This member is automatically added to the new group.

If you intend to add stars/images to the member group, I would advise that you go into the main edit member groups feature, and amend the new group you have created..
